The key to everything is patience. You get the chicken by hatching the egg, not by smashing it open. – Arnold Glasgow, American humorist

Many of us are impatient at times. Losing control of our patience hurts not only us, but those around us. Impatience raises our stress level and can even cause physical harm to our bodies. Being impatient can also damage relationships.

Patience is the companion of wisdom.
